Where did I go last night that featured a pinball machine with an anti-racism message?
Why, to the fabulous ‘Ivy Room’ in Albany, California. And what did I do there?
I saw this guy play.
Okay, so you went to this place and saw that guy, I hear you all thinking. But did you go by yourself?
No, I went with these two guys, whom I have known longer than most of you have been alive. And who is the guy with the guitar, you are obviously wondering?
He is Eric McFadden. Don’t feel bad. I didn’t know who he was either. Big Johnny told me about him, and suggested we all go see the show. And he rocked.
There were a lot of musical styles in his music, but it was mostly rock and roll… with a little blues.
The Bay Area has always been supportive of its artists. There are venues for your art to be seen in.
And it’s… well… it’s the Bay Area.
I like that he had different vocalists and guitarists join him on stage for a few songs.
Unfortunately, those clouds are made up mostly of smoke from fires as far away as Canada.
I never know where to look when I do selfies… also, I was pretty drunk. But I saw some good friends, and had a blast. And I feel more or less okay today.
Now, back to my Yosemite adventure!
